First of all, I wish to thank all of you for your comments today. And, Al, I REALLY appreciate yours! Yes, I need to slow down and take my time when taking photos. I'm always in such a rush, even when I take photographs. You reminded me of that! :-)
So, tonight, I sat down and tweeked the photo a few times (still using PicMonkey), but using the color and saturation modes.
Here are the results! I hope you all enjoy them as much as I enjoyed experimenting with different effects! :-)
I started with the original photograph. Then, I cropped it...much better already! :-) Then, I played with the sharpness. I'm glad I did this and maybe now I won't be afraid to edit my photos! BIG STEP FORWARD for me! Thank you all! :-)
